‘The Women Changing the World’ Book

The Women Changing the World

This book is a collection of stories for women by women focused on inspiring purpose, vision and everyday activism. Featuring real-life, relatable role-models from all walks of life who are women changing the world through entrepreneurialism, education, conscious living, giving back, advocacy, innovation and more who had the courage to listen to the call to make a difference and took action to make it happen!

The Women Changing the World is a collaboration of authors featuring Emma Allen, our Director. She writes about her philanthropic values and work that she has been involved with in Australia and overseas. This includes her collaboration with Global Village Housing (GVH) building and gifting homes and schools in rural part of Cambodia; The Sewing Sisters Project and The Liza Label, socially conscious business by Samantha Townend; and the battle to change our perception of women and girls through the Striking Distance project, to use self-defence as a way to combat bullying and violence towards women.

Emma says that “if we are aware of what needs to change, we just need to care enough to do something about it.”

The vision for this book was to create something powerful that would inspire others to take action and make the world a better place. We hope this book inspires you to create positive change in big and small ways.

The book launch involved presentations by some of the authors at an online-festival in December 2021. To watch a recording of Emma’s presentation on her chapter, view the YouTube clip here.
